CMIS connector fails to save documents with Bad Request error



During 'Fax to Case' creation, the Intake case is created. However, an exception occurs when the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) connector is invoked and multiple documents are saved in SharePoint in succession.
The application must save documents in SharePoint instead of in the PegaRULES database. During 'Fax to Case' creation by the listener, the system saves all incoming emails (.eml files) in SharePoint and during processing, the system displays a Bad Request error.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Compose an email and add an attachment to that email. 
  2. Send the email to the correct Fax system which the Listener uses to consume Fax for Intake Case creation.

Root Cause

A defect or configuration issue in the operating environment.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Use Basic authentication instead of NT LAN Manager (NTLM).
  2. Make the end point secure using single sign-on (SSL).
  3. Use the domain name in the Realm field.
  4. Check the Preemptive checkbox in the Authentication profile.
